Very light weight and durable box. This one is 6x8". The muslin was applied with acrylic gel plus a final coat.

Re: Wet Panel Carrier cheap and fast to assemble...

Great stuff.
I like the capacity for lots of work, but my own capacity varies a fair bit so I like the option of one-offs. You might find this funny but Dollarama sells "Bacon Boxes" (Like you need to house bacon? HMM?) which are shells of plastic that you can mount masonite panels in if you just want to paint one or two pics.
Not that I'm worried about weight on your gatorboard design! Brilliant.
New here; the first post I looked at was this which is an ongoing theme for me. Thanks!

Re: Wet Panel Carrier cheap and fast to assemble...

Love the idea! Are there more detailed instructions somewhere that I'm missing? I can't figure out how to get all the pieces out of a 20x30" panel! Thanks.

Re: Wet Panel Carrier cheap and fast to assemble...

Inspired I had a go. I wanted a small panel hoder for 18x24 cm panels as I like the Belle Arti ones that Jacksons sell - relatively cheaply in bulk. most panel boxes are in imperial size . I had a sheet of corrugated plastic left over from some I bought about 12 years ago to make a secure folder I needed for some very large (5 foot by 3 foot) photographs I had printed.
I was also looking for some suitable plastic channel and found this in B&Q a DIY store chain. It cost around $10, but now I have enough to make several boxes. The other materials needed are a small saw, hobby knife and duct tape as well as some contact adhesive.



cut out, scored and channels glued in - (nearly got it right)



folded and taped - inside view



rather clunky completed box, but small and light enough to fit in my day pack



many thanks to all who contributed to this thread

Robin

Re: Wet Panel Carrier cheap and fast to assemble...

Good idea! I made one similar from hardboard a couple years ago. It fell apart so I re-taped, gluing all joints this time. Much heavier than yours I imagine.

Thumbs up Re: Wet Panel Carrier cheap and fast to assemble...

Jim Serrett has a nice blog post on his website about making a nice wet panel carrier out of wood. I think you guys will appreciate this: http://www.pochadeboxpaintings.blogs...l-carrier.html

His is made with pine and birch. It's more expensive than these lightweight versions but it's tough and beautiful!
